Paul McCartney to play a concert with son James

James’ McCartney’s upcoming album is a surprising thing to me.  It seems a little late in his career for a debt album.  Why did he wait so long?  Possibly this is simply a case of him dabbling in the music business.  I think it’s great that father and son can share in the joys of making music.

What do you think his encores will be?  Maybe we’ll get to hear some Wings’ tracks and some Flaming Pie as the two McCartney men perform together on stage.  That would be something.  Maybe James will play “Lovely Linda” from McCartney in homage to his mother?  Stay tuned as more details emerge.

Here’s what we’ve read.

Sir Paul McCartney is set to play a concert with his son James.

The Beatles legend has teamed up with the 30-year-old guitarist on his debut album – which is due out later this year – and the father-son pair now plan to try out their new material live.

A source said: “The word is James wants to try out some of the songs on stage in the near future and it’s understood that Paul will be performing with him.”

However, any fans hoping for a big concert will be sorely disappointed, as James – whose mother was Paul’s late first wife Linda McCartney – wants to avoid attention.

The source added: “James won’t want a big fuss as he’s not someone who seeks the limelight, so it will inevitably be very low-key. But Paul is not a bad backing musician to have under the circumstances.”

It will not be the first time the pair have played live together.

In 2005, James – who co-wrote ‘Heaven on a Sunday’, ‘Back In The Sunshine Again’ and ‘Spinning On An Axis’ for Paul’s solo albums – accompanied his father during his recent US tour.

James also played lead guitar on his mother’s posthumously released solo album ‘Wide Prairie’.

  1. People don’t *have* to enter showbiz as teenagers, you know. Do you have something against people starting a career later in life? As I understand it James always wanted to make music, but was reluctant to because of the inevitable comparisons to his father. At this point he probably thought “To hell with it!” and decided to make an album, critics be damned.

  2. Most of Paul’s kids are talented in thier own right. I don’t see any of them starving to death in the near future. LOL. So why not take life as you wish? It would be nice to be able to just pop up one morning at age 30 and be able to record and produce a solo album if I wish.

    It would be selfish of anyone to think that the Beatle’s offspring would get together and make a “Beatle’s Second Generation” band. I’m sure that wild expectations of just that kind have kept most of the kids of the fab four out of the spotlight. I say this mainly because the media, in general, would tag on the beatle influence so heavily, that they would have to fight twice as hard to be accepted for what they truly are and stand for.

    I look at James and see both his mother’s and father’s features. They blend well together. I can’t wait to hear his solo offering. It would be interesting to know who his musical influences were growing up…besides his father or any of the Beatles.
